“She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. … She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.” — Proverbs 31:13, 21-22
Today is Mother’s Day, so here are a few things that I admire about my mother:
- She worked her way through college.
- She chose to homeschool me and my siblings. Neither she nor my dad was homeschooled, but she knew that she wanted to do that for us.
- She was always interested in nutrition. One of the local grocery stores actually started an organic section just for her!
- She taught herself to sew as a little girl. She has taught me to sew, knit, crotchet, quilt, and cross-stitch. She has made wedding dresses, costumes, sweaters, &c. We have cross-stitches framed on our walls that she stitched. When I was a little girl, she made many of my clothes. I have many adorable outfits saved that she made for me.
Here are some pictures of outfits my mother made for me that I have saved:
I loved playing with my baby blanket. The yellow corduroy dress and the strawberry dress with its pinafore were a couple of my absolute favorite outfits as a child. The sweater was my favorite sweater ever and I was so sad when I wore it out at the elbows!
Happy Mother’s Day!
